Treat mum to something a little extra special
Stuck on what to get mum for Mother's Day?
Here's a gorgeous idea she'll love: Treat her to a shopping day, a very special High Tea experience and she could also walk away with a gorgeous pair of Pandora earrings (you'll also come away looking like the favourite child as well!).
Located just above the Eastland Shopping Centre, Sage Hotel Ringwood is offering a gorgeous High Tea event this Mother's Day.

Partake Restaurant, located within Sage Hotel Ringwood, is hosting two Mother's Day High Tea sittings (11am and 2:30pm) on Sunday 12 May which are replete with decadent desserts, welcome drinks, prizes, gift bags and free-flowing tea.
On the three-tiered High Tea stand, expect to delight in freshly baked scones with house-made berry jam and extra thick cream, lemon meringue tartlets, hand rolled chocolate truffles, leek and Persian feta quiches, chicken liver pate with port jelly with Melba toast, salted caramel fudge and more.
Ensuring the little ones aren't left out, there is a children's High Tea menu on offer, which includes freshly baked scones, poached chicken and avocado pillows, mini pies and strawberry tartlets.
The high tea event will take place over two seatings at Sage Hotel's Partake Restaurant.
On arrival, each adult guest will receive a welcome drink, a gift bag which includes retail vouchers and beauty product samples valued at around $75 in each gift bag. There will also be prizes drawn on the day from Sisko Chocolate, Rodan and Fields and the chance to win two pairs of earrings from Pandora.
Prices for the Mother's Day High Tea are $69 per adult and $25 for children (under 12 yrs). Bookings are essential and can be made by calling 03 8845 1100 or emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
